Faux Wool Flowers in a Vase Applique Quilt

I designed this applique quilt myself and used flannel prints that look like wool. I did all the embroidery by hand, which I love to do. Then I quilted it. The cotton flannel is cheaper than 100% wool and if wool makes you itch, it's also softer and no itch. I love the look of wool and I do have wool and wool blends that I use on some things, but this flannel is certainly a nice alternative, especially for a quilt. The plaid border and binding is a cotton fabric, but not flannel.
Flowers and vase are all flannel fabrics. The background and border and binding are cotton fabrics, but not flannel.
I hand embroidered all the flowers, leaves and vase.
I echo quilted around the vase of flowers.
Pin It Now!


  1. STUNNING!!! Love all the details on the flowers.

  2. Well this quilt caught my eye, and then I saw the embroidery detail, well done!

  3. I does look like wool. Beautifully done and it's a pretty still life design.

  4. You are so talented, Daryl. I love the variety of projects that you do. The flowers are beautiful.

  5. It's beautiful! And if you had not mention the fabric, I would have thought it entirely made of wool. Very clever. Your embroidery is quite lovely. I particularly like the details that you've made inside the petals.

  6. Hello bloggie friend,
    I'm sorry I've been MIA life has been so hectic this summer. I definitely need to catch up on your beautiful projects. This is beautiful with all the detail you always add to your projects. I hope you summer has been going well and I bet busy too:) Thank you for stopping by today over my blog and your sweet comment, I always appreciate you taking the time.

  7. Your choice of flannels over wool is very economically smart and the look is really quite similar. Love your Vase of appliqued flowers.

  8. Hi Daryl,

    I am visiting you from Super Mom - No Cape. My first time visiting your blog.
    What a lovely quilt. I love your fabric choices. Stunning echo quilting. You are very clever, it works so well! See you again soon, Barbara xx

  9. So pretty. This is a great design and your quilting is really pretty.

  10. Hello Daryl! Your quilt is beautiful! The embroidery stitches are lovely and add such a lot of texture! Christine x

  11. Such a charming bouquet Daryl! You embroidered details are fabulous and remind me of crazy quilting. Love you idea of using cotton flannel. Excellent work!

  12. I'd never thought of using flannel instead of wool. I am allergic to wool so haven't been able to even think about trying some of the pretty projects I've seen. Your vase of flowers is so pretty and the embroidery is beautifully done.

    Thanks so much for linking up again to last week's Stitchery Link Party.
